I did it~ running

I did go and get those running shoes yesterday and am hoping to try them out today if it does not rain on me. I have 4 weeks till Josh gets home so time to put it in overdrive to get this body healthy....well after about 5 handfuls of chocolate chips last night is not a very good start to that goal. Today I woke up in a good mood and then I don't know what happened but my anxiety level went crazy. I don't know what my problem was but I thought it would be a good idea to take a run. I did pretty good, not sure how far I ran but will clock it later today and let you know. Off to a good start as far as the running goes. So now I need to figure out how to put on my blog my daily running log. It felt really good to run and would be even better if I coul do it without a stroller and earlier in the morning. A little at a time.

Now today I need to hang those new curtains and return some to Target. I will post before and after pictures.

I was reading a friends blog and then found my way to the R3 site and looked over the times for the 4th annual R3 run. I so long to have that desire to run again and actually enjoy it and not think the whole time- how much longer. Running is challenging, a total body workout, a great stress relief, time to think, have that "me" time, and so many other things but , yes a but, but why can't I seem to get excited about it. I see people running and think "I can do that", "I want to do that", "what great shape I would be in if I would do that...", uuuggghhh! Then as I looked down the page of the running results to look at each category, I see people in their 50's, 60's an 70's running and with awesome times! Yes a man who is 71 ran the 5K in 30:33! Wow!!!! I can only hope to be in that great of shape to be exercising much less running at the age of 71. Okay I only have 34 years to train to that point! hahaha, okay my goal this week is to head to the R3 store and get some new running shoes (ones that the Velcro will not keep coming off)(my old running shoes are about 3 years old so it is time! Check back and see if I actually accomplished this or not and see where these running shoes will take me.....

It has been a while...I know

Wow, I can not believe that is has been over a month since I have written anything. Well what can I say, life has been crazy. What has happened in the last ummm 50 days give or take a few days......
taking care of very independent two year olds,
missing my husband,
cutting grass,
my best friends (high school) wedding- which I was in,
my best friends wedding cake- which I made,
missing my husband,
had in-laws come visit,
had my dad come visit a couple times,
trimming tress,
carpet replaced in the house,
painted my bathroom,
bought a new comforter for our bed,
touch up paint in whole house,
packed up more things,
had mirror in master bath framed and outlet moved,
missing my husband,
going crazy chasing after independent two year olds,
got sick,
cutting mile high grass,
forgetting to pay the water bill, uh oh big time!,
working with a few clients,
missing my husband,
trying to explain to a 2 year old that their daddy is coming home soon,
trying to get motivated to cook for me a 2 two year olds,
traveled to Mississippi for a week,
watching my children light up when they are with their grandparents,
watching my little girl gain the confidence to put her head under water and swim with floaties,
cutting even more grass,
catching up with friends,
missing friends,
meeting new friends,
appreciating life and all God's blessings,
cleaning house or should I say trying to keep this house clean,
missing my husband,
wondering what God is going to bring into our lives next,
dreaming of that bakery,
thinking how proud I am of my husband & how much he is growing w/ his relationship w/ God,
watching my little ones fall asleep next to me and thanking God for his many blessings!

GOD is amazing! Good night all, sleep tight.....
